Captain Clarkey: Bloody Brilliant!

How amazing is Michael Clarke? I have enjoyed his cricket from the very first time I saw him play which was against the Indians in his debut match. You know, the one where he made a century in Bangalore.{FYI, Gilly made one during that match too…I didn’t miss a ball!}

But what’s been even more amazing is the manner in which he has grown since becoming captain.

This is the same guy who was booed when he captained our country for the first time.

This was the guy who copped a lot of flak from people for being too concerned about himself.

This is the guy about whom I remember hearing on the radio was considered not captain material and not mature enough.

But you know what?

He’s let his bat do the talking. As he should.

With four double centuries in one year. All as captain. And two against the best bowling attack in the world.

Good on you Clarkey! You have my respect mate.

Let’s keep smashing them!!

Until next time,

Cheers!!!
